Backless Portsmouth Bench

Born out of a commission to design new choir stalls for Portsmouth Cathedral, made with oak which, whilst heavy, is possessed of an inherent strength that allows sections of the design to be very thin. Resulting in a bench that is both slim and elegant.

Isokon was founded in 1931 by Jack Pritchard, a visionary leader at the heart of British Modernism, alongside Canadian Architect Wells Coates. It began with the Lawn Road flats in Hampstead, the first modern building of its kind, which required the furniture and fittings that Pritchard had envisaged.

In 1997 Isokon became Isokon Plus, when then owner, Chris McCourt began working with new designers Edward Barber & Jay Osgerby. Today Isokon Plus continues to forge long-lasting partnerships with designers who understand and respect the ideals of the original founders. 

The entire collection is handmade.
